Victoria Beckham Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Victoria Beckham morphed from the baby-faced pop singer of The Spice Girls to super thin fashionista with an oft-imitated bob. Marrying hottie footballer David Beckham and paling around with the likes of Katie Holmes and Will Smith only further solidified her A-list status. Attributing her shrinking frame to controlled eating, Victoria has insisted she’s never had an eating disorder. And while she’s never publicly discussed her rumored plastic surgery, Victoria inadvertently admitted to a boob job when she exclaimed on her show Victoria Beckham: Coming To America, “I really thought that one of my silicones was going to fly out of my armpit then.”

Although Victoria makes other moms of three green with envy, she insists she doesn’t like many things about her picture-perfect frame. “There are loads of things I don’t like about my body. I don’t like my hair, my belly button, my stomach or my fingernails. Also I have no definition, probably from having babies. I could go to the gym but I haven’t got the time or the energy.” Do you miss the cutesy/sexy pop singer known as “Posh Spice?” Or do you prefer the haute couture-wearing vision of sophistication that Victoria Beckham is now?

Tara Reid Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Tara Reid took all our hopes and dreams for her future and crushed them underneath one of her massive, fake boobs. The actress was on top of the world in the late 90s, balancing indie appeal in The Big Lebowski with box office hit American Pie. Her acting chops were only enhanced by her smoking hot looks — maxing out her sex appeal with her girl next door look and raspy voice. An engagement to MTV star Carson Daly only solidified Reid’s star power.

But Tara took a nosedive off the A-List, as her reputation as a hard-partying diva eclipsed her film career. In one of the most humiliating Hollywood moments ever, she revealed her boob job to the world at Diddy‘s 35th birthday party, when a wardrobe malfunction accidentally displayed her swollen and scarred left breast. Later photos also revealed a strange rippling affect in Tara’s stomach, which was a result of botched liposuction. Since the dress disaster, Tara’s made most of her money doing party promotions and is slowly working to reclaim her career — and her reputation.

Madonna Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Since gyrating her way onto MTV in 1982, Madonna has been on the cutting edge of fashion, style and trends. As a Detroit-transplant living in Big Apple, Madge made waves with her bleached hair, lacy gloves and skirts, and rosary necklaces.

With legions of fans mimicking her every move, Madonna quickly switched it up in the early 90s – chopping off her hair and embracing her boobs in Jean Paul Gaultier‘s infamous pointy bra. Then, ya know, there was her yoga phase, her Evita infatuation, her baby belly, another cross obsession, her book Sex and a little film called Truth or Dare. Madonna’s reinventions are as endless and infamous as her hits.

These days, Madonna’s sporting a reserved, polished look while raising her three children in both London and New York. While her body — somewhat freakishly — is more ripped than ever before, some would say her taut face and raised eyebrows are starting to look a little artificial. But the Material Girl is still making front pages news for her looks. Is Madonna fab after all these years? Or should she think about giving it up?

Mariah Carey Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Mariah Carey busted onto the music scene in 1990 with her debut album Mariah, and quickly became a Grammy-winning sensation who churned out hit after hit and monopolized the Billboard charts. It seemed she could do no wrong – until she starred in the semi-autobiographical joke of a film, 2001′s Glitter. As a promotional stunt for movie, Mariah infamously (and oddly) stripped down and slurred her way through passing out popsicles on MTV’s TRL. The pressures of the fame machine led to a full-scale breakdown.

But in 2008, Mariah came back looking great. Not only had she picked up a hot young husband named Nick Cannon but she looked so tight and fit that people speculated she had undergone $150,000 of plastic surgery — rumors she adamantly denies. Although she has been through some mental and fashion disasters, Mariah still reigns as the singer with the most number one singles in the United States, and earlier this year posed on the beach with her hubby in a teeny-weeny bikini, proving that a female pop star can still be a sex symbol at 39.

Is the Mariah of 2008 as fabulous as the Mariah of the 90s? Has her comeback been fab or fail?

Holly Madison Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Holly Madison went from Hooters waitress with a dream to hot independent woman with a career of her own. As Holly climbed up the ranks as one of Hugh Hefner’s seven girlfriends, her appearance also seemed to make a transition. Holly toned up, her nose got smaller, her hair got thicker and longer, and she had a breast job. She also upped her beauty regimen after hooking up with Hef in 2001. “More just tanning, makeup, getting hair done… just simple things that I hadn’t really had the time or interest to do before,” she said.

After becoming a household name thanks to Girls Next Door, Holly left Hef and the Playboy Mansion behind, briefly dated magician Criss Angel, then snagged a spot on the hit TV show Dancing With the Stars. Most people would probably agree that Holly has moved out of the shadow of her famous boyfriend and become her very own successful, gorgeous girl. But some might find the new Holly to be too plastic and artificial? Is Holly’s makeover fab or fail?

Jack Osbourne Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Jack Osbourne came on the scene as a pudgy, curly-haired rebellious teenager on the hit reality series, The Osbournes. As the trials and tribulations of his rock family were chronicled, Jack was often shown chowing down on Easy Mac and fighting with his sister Kelly Osbourne. But Jack shed nearly seventy pounds and debuted a whole new look in 2005.

Jack kick-started his weight loss by detoxing at a Thai kickboxing camp which included a high fiber liquid diet and coffee enemas. The rehabbed star gave up cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and junk food, started running and rock climbing and going to bed early. He traded in his rocker T-shirts for tailored suits and swapped his glasses for contacts. Jack had fully made his transformation when in December 2005 he appeared semi-naked in Cosmopolitan, which he said was a big “Ha! To everyone who laughed at him before.”

Is the new Jack fab? Or do you miss the old?

Mel B Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

As the most outlandish member of the 90s girl group The Spice Girls, Melanie Brown (aka, Mel B) sported a mass of curly hair, a loud Leeds accent, an aggressive attitude, and flashy outfits (often featuring leopard prints), all of which helped earn her the moniker “Scary Spice.” Melanie busted out on her own after the group split up, but had moderate success as a solo recording artist.

After moving to Los Angeles from England, Melanie was embroiled in a bitter paternity battle with Eddie Murphy after claiming she was pregnant with his baby in 2006. The paternity test proved that the baby was indeed Eddie’s and Mel B named him “Beverly Hills Cock.” After the drama had settled, Mel B formed a family with new hubby Stephen Belafonte and competed on Dancing With the Stars. Melanie has replaced the “Scary” outfits of the ’90s with a more demure, glamorous look and she’s straightened her formerly wild hair. Her ripped abs and classy look solidify her as a Hollywood M.I.L.F.

Do you like the Mel B of the ’90s or the Melanie of today?

Britney Spears Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Britney Spears has seen her share of ups and downs, and the drama has played out in the tabloids as well as all over her body. The pop star was known for her taut abs and cut physique before getting pregnant with sons Jayden and Sean Preston. While she reclaimed her pre-baby bod after their births, things went downhill as her emotional state began to crumble following her divorce from Kevin Federline.

In 2007, Brit plastered her body with unfortunate tattoos (like a pair of puckered lips) before infamously shaving her head. The singer then donned a variety of wigs and shoddy hair extensions, ate one too many Cheetos, and lost her immaculate physique. But a stint in a mental hospital and support from her parents sure did the trick.

Since awkwardly shuffling around in a too-tight bikini at the 2007 MTV Music Awards, Brit has rebounded with a firmed-up look thanks to her dance-heavy tour, Circus. There are the usual whispers of plastic surgery, but we think our girl Brit did this all on her own — minus those luxurious hair extensions.

Courtney Love Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

The last person we ever expected to go under the knife was grunge queen Courtney Love. The Hole lead singer revolutionized rock chick chic in the early 90s, when she started a worldwide trend with her baby doll dresses and barrettes. But while the disheveled look fit her image as Mrs. Kurt Cobain, she gave it up in the late 90s, when her acting career began to blossom.

Courtney glammed up her look while doing press for The People vs. Larry Flynt, and also had numerous plastic surgery procedures done. Most recently, she decided her nose job made her look too perfect and plastic, so she had reversal surgery to make it look, well, uglier. She wrote on her blog, “I’ve had my nose fixed. It looks like the one God gave me so I’m happy not to have crazy lips and a crazy teensy unnatural little nose.”

Kathy Griffin Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Working with statuesque Brooke Shields every day would surely make anyone feel that their physical appearance had room for improvement, to say the least. Kathy Griffin starred opposite Brooke in the 90s hit comedy Suddenly Susan as her co-worker Vicky, who constantly complained that Brooke’s character could get anything simply because of her stunning looks. Perhaps Kathy believed her character’s M.O.: she underwent a laundry list of plastic surgery procedures to drastically change nearly every part of her body.

“I had lipo from my waist down — my stomach, thighs and the inside of my knees. The idea was to look like Jennifer Aniston. It didn’t work out at all. When I woke up I was not able to pee. I got toxicity and had to go to the emergency room and wear a catheter for a week. It was life-threatening, and the results were nonexistent,” she told Redbook of her first horrifying liposuction experience. The drama didn’t stop Kathy, however. She continued on her plastic surgery parade: changing her arms, legs, teeth, hair, lips, and nose, and emerging as the sleek star of her own hit reality show, Life On the D List.

Do you think her makeover has been fab or fail?
